The Accomplice

Kathryn Heyman
Authors:
Kathryn Heyman

THE ACCOMPLICE describes one of the most shocking events of the seventeenth century: the wreck of the Dutch ship Batavia off the coast of Western Australia, and the extraordinary events that befell its stranded survivors. Combining a gripping narrative with vivid historical detail, THE ACCOMPLICE is a beautiful, terrifying, deeply moving novel of love and anarchy.
